Hello from Babyland

Update from the homestead: 1 1/2 weeks until due date. Here in pictures: Buddy is saying 'hi' to the baby on a recent hike near Hill's Creek with Mac and Jeff and girls.
And then Mac & I on the beach in Michigan in September.

News reel.

Mac and Danielle have taken off to Coburg, where they will be having their baby. The shop is in the caring hands of those who work here, and we are managing just fine, but its not the same without Mac, Danielle, and Buddy here to keep things rolling. I'm encouraging them to post on this blog, and keep us up to date on the happenings as the birth gets nearer.

Add a comment to tell us what you think of our new blog if you like.

Ready for Adventure

First posting for the Mountain Mercantile Blog!

During the past three years we have transformed an unused truck repair garage into our humble shop. We have packed it full of skis, bikes, Carhartt clothing, tools, lights, camping equipment, and everything else we like to use outdoors. We have met thousands of friends from the community and around the world, and helped hundreds if not thousands of people find their way to the local trails and camping spots within our bioregion.

Our shop is dedicated to providing excellent equipment and expertise for outdoor enthusiasts, and everyday residents of Oakridge. We strive to provide a wide selection of price points, while retaining a high standard of quality.

It is our hope that this blog will help to connect our friends, inform those interested in our shop of the current goings on, and provide a platform for posting pictures and stories of the excellent adventures we, and those around us, embark upon. Feel free to leave your comments, and suggest links that are helpful and relevant.
